ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

The St. Louis Blues put themselves in the running for host another premiere NHL event in 2020 or 2021. 

On Sept. 26, the team submitted their bid to host the NHL All-Star Game. If approved and given the hosting privileges, it would be the third time the All-Star game would come to St. Louis. The last time game was played in St. Louis was 1988, back at the Old Arena. 

However, no All-Star games have been played in the Scottrade Center. That's something the Blues are trying to change down the road. 

The home of the Blues has hosted other marquee events, including the Missouri Valley Conference tournaments, the NCAA Men's Hockey Frozen Four National Championship, the NCAA Women's basketball Final Four, and the national championship for NCAA Men's Wrestling. All of these tournaments were Division I. 

The Scottrade Center will also be hosting the 2018 SEC Men's Basketball Championship.
